Classic Car Experiences

Hire one of our cars for a classic car experience day adventure, short break or classic car holiday. It’s a fabulous way to enjoy a more a relaxed pace of life, taking in some of the stunning scenery in the Yorkshire Dales, the Lake District, North York Moors, Yorkshire coast or the Peak District. Our Keighley base is within easy reach of Skipton, the gateway to the Dales. Our Leeds base gives ready access to Harrogate and York and our Ampleforth base is near to Thirsk and Pickering for The North York Moors or the Yorkshire coast.

Trackdays car experiences are great, but you only get a few laps in the car, lasting only a short time and supervised by an instructor.  So your driving experience doesn’t last long and you can’t take a passenger with you. With our classic car  car experience days you get a whole day (or more) behind the wheel. In addition, you can take as many passengers as the car can seat, without extra charge.

If you want to give someone a surprise classic car experience day, we can provide gift vouchers that are valid for one year. The vouchers are transferable to a different car, subject to an extra charge if the car chosen is a more expensive one.
